I'm going to the movies around 6, and I was thinking about mashing in before I left and when I got back 3-3 1/2 hours, I would drain/sparge as soon as I get back. Could I run into any problems with lactic bacteria? It's a light lager so it couldn't handle any slight off flavors.

This way, I'm not up till 2 AM brewing.

Lactic won't be an issue since you will be boiling after. 3.5 hours isn't enough to get them going.
