Friends hits cinemas for first time ever in celebration of 25th anniversary

Friends fans unite as the iconic sitcom is about to hit cinema screens in celebration of the milestone 25th anniversary.

More than 1,000 theatres will air 12 episodes across three nights in September and October, meaning we’ll finally be able to get our fix of Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc on the big screen.

Episodes that are due to play include The One With The Black Out, The One Where No One’s Ready, and The One Where Everyone Finds Out, as well as a whole bunch of exclusive interviews and never-seen-before content.

‘The cultural impact that Friends continues to have, 25 years after its premiere, is astounding, a true testament to the genius of Marta Kauffman, David Crane, Kevin Bright, and the incredibly talented cast,’ said Warner Bros Television Group President & Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Gregorian.

‘It is so amazing to know that the series is still bringing people of all ages together.’

She added: ‘We could not be more excited to deliver these digitally remastered episodes to theaters – for the first time ever! – so that together, in a shared experience, our loyal fans can enjoy some of their favorite Friends scenes in a new way.’

The screenings will take place across the pond in the United States with tickets going on sale on Friday 16 August.

Friends’ 25th anniversary celebrations are well and truly underway, with LEGO releasing a collectible set with our favourite characters transformed into figurines.

Not only do you get minifigures for Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, and Phoebe Buffay but there’s also a LEGO version of Central Perk.

Included are the famous couch and two chairs, Phoebe’s little stage area, and the shop counter with a brick-built coffee machine – oh, and Gunther.

Could we be anymore excited?

Friends is available to stream on Netflix.
