SINCE 1994 it has put smiles on the faces of television lovers the world over – from its first airing, through years of re-runs, to its current spot on Netflix UK.
But soon Friends fans in Portsmouth will be able to watch their favourite show like never before as it appears on the big screen for the first time.
Bosses at Vue in Gunwharf Quays will hold three Friends marathons in December to mark 25 years since the hit US sitcom began.
The events will see 12 iconic episodes from Friends’ 10 series remastered in 4K resolution, with new intros and ‘exciting bonus content’.
Among these will be The One the Morning After – which features Ross’ infamous ‘we were on a break’ line – and The One Where Ross Got High, made famous by Rachel’s horrific Thanksgiving trifle.
Johnny Carr, event cinema manager at Vue UK and Ireland, said: ‘Friends is one of the most prominent TV shows of all time so we’re absolutely delighted to be showing not one but 12 episodes at Vue.
‘People of all ages will enjoy the screenings so it’s a great thing for friends and family alike to do together.
‘Whether you’re a Joey or a Monica, all viewers will have a fantastic time watching within the best seats and sound quality in big screen entertainment.’
Tickets are available for each individual screening, which will feature four episodes each, or as a set for all three from myvue.com.
