Just in time for Thanksgiving, you’ll get to celebrate the holiday with ‘Friends’. It’s only being shown in 700 theaters across the US, and only over two days, so you’d better move fast if you want to change up that Thanksgiving tradition.
If you miss the Friends show in a very real way, this is the best chance to get your fill of Ross, Joey, and the others.
A New Friends Thanksgiving Movie? Really?!
While this is being advertised as a Friends Thanksgiving movie, don’t get too excited. It isn’t actually going to have any new content in it, which is a bummer for major fans of the series who get hopeful every time someone posts a group selfie on social media.
Instead, this is going to be a collection of eight classic holiday episodes of the sitcom we all know and love. Even if you’ve seen them before, it is sure to be a new experience for you.
All eight episodes have been remastered and will be shown in 4K. That’s pretty impressive for a show that aired in the 90s and early 2000s. None of these episodes have ever been shown on a theater’s big screen before.
Where Can I See This Friendsgiving Movie Marathon?!
According to reports, there will be up to 700 theaters across the US that will show the Friends Thanksgiving Movie on November 24 and 25. The two-day screenings (which take place on the Sunday and Monday before Thanksgiving) will show four episodes each day.
Tickets are on sale right now on the Fanthom Events page, but we expect them to go fast, so pull out your wallets now if you want to secure a movie theater seat later this month.
The runtime is expected to be just over two hours for each show, so a total of four hours of Friends across two days.
We call that a normal day in our household, but you know…
What Episodes Will Be Shown During the Friends Thanksgiving Movie?
The first four episodes are “The One Where Underdog Gets Away” (Season 1, Episode 9), “The One With The List” (Season 2, Episode 8), “The One With The Football” (Season 3, Episode 9), and finally “The One With All The Thanksgivings” (Season 5, Episode 8).
The second four episodes, on November 25, are set to be “The One Where Ross Got High” (Season 6, Episode 9), “The One Where Chandler Doesn’t Like Dogs” (Season 7, Episode 8), “The One With Rachel’s Other Sister” (Season 9, Episode 8), and “The One With The Late Thanksgiving” (Season 10, Episode 8).
Friends celebrated its 25th anniversary in September, having first aired on September 22 in 1994. The show ran for 10 seasons with a total of 236 episodes.
Can’t wait? It’s all on Netflix right now. While not on a big screen, and not in 4K, you can experience all 8 episodes this weekend if you really want.
