To make the return to late night study sessions a little less painful, Trailers From Hell has partnered with Barnsdall Art Park Foundation to present a screening series of classic and cult films set in high school (including TFH Guru Allan Arkush’s Rock ‘n’ Roll High School).
Here’s the official lowdown from the fine folks at Barnsdall:
Adolescent angst. Raging hormones. Twisted teachers. Barnsdall Art Park Foundation and Joe Dante’s Trailers From Hell present “School Nights,” an outdoor fall film series celebrating the beloved high school movie. It was a “time to remember” (or one to forget). Relive the wonder and terror of your teen years with these five essential films.
