Just curious to see if people use lens hoods on their film cameras, particularly 35mm SLRs.

Yes i do. On every Lens. Usually 35mm. Or 35-70mm, or 28-70mm. Or seldom 50mm.

Because i don't want flares on my Film Exposures, or lower contrast from stray Light. I've had a Lens Hood for my 1st SLR, Pentax MX and SMC 50/1.7 Prime into the 80s.
