CHICAGO (AP) — Ferris Bueller has returned to Wrigley Field, though this time he didn't have to cut class. And he helped set a world record.

The 1986 film "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" about three truant teenagers' adventures around Chicago was screened Saturday night at the historic baseball field. In one scene, the trio attends a Chicago Cubs game at the park.

The event helped mark the film's 25th anniversary. The screening is the first of its kind at the home of the Cubs, which are out of playoff contention.

During the screening, more than 900 viewers sang along as Ferris lip syncs "Danke Schoen." A representative from the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed that it broke the previous 500-person record for the most people singing in a round.
