Question about Japanese

What is the difference between 用事があったんだ and 用事があるんだ?
Feel free to just provide example sentences.

例文を見ておいてください:

ア:今週の土曜,映画見に行かない?
イ:行こう,行こう。どこで見る?新宿?渋谷?
ア:あ,ごめん!その日の午前中,池袋で用事があったんだ。池袋じゃだめかなあ?
イ:いいよ,いいよ。

I wonder why past tense (用事があった) is used here since they are obviously talking about an event in the future (今週の土曜日).

Many thanks for your help.
