"Friends" will be there for you, at your local movie theater.
You’ll want to take a break from your Netflix binge next month and see your favorite "Friends" on the silver screen. The iconic NYC-set sitcom is hitting more than 1,000 theaters across the country in celebration of the 25th anniversary of its 1994 premiere.
The Fathom Events screening brings 12 episodes — a variety of fan favorites from the series’ 10 seasons — to theaters for three nights.
The first, Sept. 23, features the pilot, "The One with the Blackout" (season 1), "The One with the Birth" (season 1) and "The One Where Ross Finds Out" (season 2). The second (Sept. 28) and third (Oct. 2) nights span through season 6, with favorites like "The One with the Prom Video" (season 2), "The One with Ross’s Wedding — Part 2" (season 4) and "The One Where Everybody Finds Out" (season 5).
Each date’s event features four, newly remastered episodes. Exclusive, previously recorded interviews are set to follow the screenings, according to a release.
"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," Lisa Gregorian, president and chief marketing officer of Warner Bros. Television Group, said in a statement. "It is so amazing to know that the series is still bringing people of all ages together."
Nine theaters in the city are participating, including AMC Bay Plaza 13 (Bronx), AMC Empire 25 (Manhattan) and Regal Sheepshead Bay 14 (Brooklyn). Tickets to "The One with the Anniversary" event are available for purchase at fathomevents.com/events.
The theater screenings join a growing list of events celebrating the 25th anniversary of the series in New York City. Warner Bros. TV is hosting a "Friends" pop-up experience, appropriately dubbed “The One with the Pop-Up,” Sept. 8 through Oct. 6. A special screening of "The One with the Embryos" and "The One Where Everybody Finds Out," is set for the Tribeca TV Festival on Sept. 13.
"Friends" — starring Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc — aired on NBC between 1994 and 2004.
