Friends 25th Anniversary: 12 Episodes to Be Screened in Theaters

-

The Friends 25th anniversary is this year, and Fathom Events is bringing episodes to the big screen. Over 1,000 theaters across the country will screen four episodes each night on September 23, 28 and October 2. Each night will feature four unique episodes that have been newly remastered in 4K from the original 35mm camera negative. This is only one of the Friends 25th anniversary celebrations happening this year. We’re also getting a new LEGO set from Central Perk and a pop-up event in New York City.

Friends 25th: The One With The Anniversary will reunite fans with their longtime BFFs — Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler and Phoebe — to re-live some of their funniest moments. Each screening will also include exclusive interviews and never-before-seen content.

Tickets for Friends 25th: The One With The Anniversary are available beginning Friday, August 16, at FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices. Fans can also visit the site for more information on what episodes will be featured.

Presented by Fathom Events and Warner Bros., this special event will screen in more than 1,000 movie theaters nationwide at 7:00 p.m. local time on Monday, September 23; Saturday, September 28; and Wednesday, October 2, through the Fathom Network. A complete list of theater locations will be available August 16 on the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

From Warner Bros. Television, Friends, which debuted on September 22, 1994, follows the lives and loves of a close-knit group of friends living in New York City: siblings Ross (David Schwimmer) and Monica Geller (Courteney Cox), along with friends Chandler Bing (Matthew Perry), Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow), Joey Tribbiani (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston). A favorite among critics and fans alike throughout its 10-season run, Friends not only won the Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series, but also garnered Emmy Awards for series stars Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow. Friends was created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, who executive produced the series with Kevin Bright through Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. A cultural phenomenon, Friends has built a legacy of devoted fans that has spanned over 25 years.

“We’re thrilled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Friends, a TV show that continues to impact culture and attract new fans from across generations,” said Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “Fans will have the opportunity to come together and look back on some of the most hilarious and emotional scenes from the acclaimed comedy — this time in theaters.”

Warner Bros. Television Group President & Chief Marketing Officer Lisa Gregorian said, “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. 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.”
