‘Friends’ will be showing in theaters for its 25th anniversary

Celebrate 25 years of Friends with a three-night anniversary event at movie theaters across the country!

It’s been 25 years since the pop-culture phenomenon known as Friends first premiered, and the show is celebrating in a major way.

There will be a special edition LEGO set featuring the characters sitting in the Central Perk, a Pottery Barn collection, and a pop-up experience in New York City.

One more event you can add to your list? A three-night event at your local theater where you’ll get to watch 12 episodes on the big screen.

On Sept. 23, Sept. 28, and Oct. 2, more than 1,000 theaters will take part in Friends 25th: The One With The Anniversary. The celebration will screen the episodes on the big screen in newly remastered 4K rather than the original 35mm camera negative.


Fans will be able to not only watch Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, and Matt LeBlanc together in theaters, they’ll likewise be treated to exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content attached to each showing.

Friends 25th: The One With The Anniversary will screen four episodes per night, meaning fans will be able to see some of the 12 of the most iconic episodes over the course of the celebration.

Warner Bros. Television Group President and Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Gregorian spoke about the celebration event, saying that “he 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. It is so amazing to know that the series is still bringing people of all ages together. 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.”

No word yet on which 12 episodes Friends 25th: The One With The Anniversary will feature. Ticket go on sale August 16th on the Fathom Events website.
