Hi Diana,
tungsten bulbs will last 50 hours, so no problem in either case, just
have an extra bulb or two on hand.
It is turning the projector on and off that is worse for the bulb,
not leaving it on for long periods.
For xenon bulbs, the danger is the projector overheating, not the
bulb, but if you put it on a timer, the bulb has to cool for ten
minutes before you turn it on again. The simpler solution may be
better. There are also motion sensors that turn on the projector when
somebody comes into the room.
A 16mm print will probably run for 30 hours with no problem. Not sure
about the super-8 print.
Hope this helps,
