Friends hits cinemas

...but it's not a movie, just sitcom episodes

Friends is coming to the big screen to mark its 25th anniversary.

But it won’t be a for a movie – instead the Odeon cinema chain is to screen some of the sitcom’s episodes back-to-back.

Four episodes will be shown on each of four nights in December - 8, 11 and 15 – with tickets priced £13.25.

The chain said: ‘Our friends are still there for you, 25 years later. Celebrate the milestone anniversary of the beloved sitcom, coming to the big screen for the first time ever.

‘This is a show about love and sex and careers and a time in life when everything is possible, about the search for commitment and security – and the fear of commitment and security.’

On December 8, Odeons will be showing the pilot episode, The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate plus The One with the Blackout; The One With The Birth and  The One Where Ross Finds Out (that Rachel has feelings for him)

On December 11 the programme is The One With the Prom Video; The One Where No One's Ready;  The One The Morning After and The One With The Embryos.

And on December 15 it will be  The One With Chandler In A Box; The One With Ross's Wedding Part 2; The One Where Everyone Finds Out and The One Where Ross Got High.

Today's comedy-on demand picks


Emma Sidi has taken great care to replicate the authentic feel of 1980s Spanish-language telenovelas in this spot-on parody, set in contemporary small-town England and which she describes as 'a bit Acorn Antiques, bit Garth Marenghi'.

At her mother's untimely funeral, Becky Hello (a typical British millennial as imagined by Mexican writers who have never been to the UK) discovers she has inherited a fortune. But it isn't long before nefarious family members begin to circle, and Becky must keep her wits about her if she is to avoid the same fate as her mother.
