The 2000 movie “Air Bud – World Cup” will be screened at New Canaan’s Pop Up Park Saturday, June 21.

A drive-in movie theater experience is coming to New Canaan Saturday night, as part of the town’s World Cup Weekend.

The movie “Air Bud – World Pup” will be screened on three big TVs in the Pop Up Park, at the corner of Elm Street and South Avenue, at 8 p.m.

This Disney adventure tells the story of a gold retriever who joins his teenage owner on the field in pursuit of the state soccer championship.

Event goers are invited to bring beach chairs or blankets and have a picnic at the park. The movie will follow the viewing of the 6 p.m. World Cup match between Nigeria and Bosnia-Herzegovina. Both events will go on rain or shine, as a tent will be in place.

The World Cup Weekend is organized by the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce with support from the New Canaan Soccer Association, the New Canaan Community Foundation, the Town of New Canaan and Barbara Cleary’s Realty Guild.
