World Theatre Hosts World Cup Viewing Party


Dozens of soccer fans gathered here at home to cheer on Team USA on Sunday night.

Kearney's World Theatre hosted a watch party, as USA took on Portugal in World Cup action.

It's the first time a sporting event has been a matinee featured on this big screen, and some fans just couldn't get enough.

"It's pretty cool to see it on the big screen. They're excited about it," said World Theatre house manager Bryce Jensen. "Some just came right from a soccer tournament so they've been doing a full soccer day, came back from Norfolk, came straight here and watching on the big screen now."

Theater management hopes to air the next USA game on Thursday, June 26th, starting at 11 a.m.
