Join us prior to this screening at 6pm for Lightbox’s Back Porch Beer Garden! 

High School student Jerry Mitchell is having “one of those days” and it only gets worse when he crosses paths with new student Buddy Revell. Buddy challenges Jerry to a fight after school and Jerry spends the rest of the day desperately trying to avoid the looming confrontation. Each attempt to escape the showdown leads to a more outlandish episode. Three O’Clock High takes the high school bully scenario and ups the ante with spirit guides from beyond the grave, an explosive burglary and a book report that verges on the pornographic.
