A quarter-century since the world first met Monica, Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe, TV's most famous friends are never too far from anyone's thoughts. When the sitcom's catchy theme tune promised "I'll be there for you", it seems these New York pals really meant it — not just about each other, but for the legions of viewers who watched their antics between 1994–2004, then kept rewatching them afterwards.

Over the years, you've probably caught reruns on television, binged your way through boxsets or let episode after episode play on TVNZ OnDemand — but you probably haven't enjoyed a marathon of standout eps on the big screen. To celebrate the series' 25th anniversary, a bunch of Auckland cinemas — Event Cinemas Westgate, Newmarket and Albany — are letting Friends fans do just that. There mightn't be an orange couch for you to sit on, but you'll want to gather the gang regardless.

Each five-hour screening will feature 12 of the show's classic episodes, including The One With The Black Out, The One With The Prom Video and The One Where No One's Ready — plus The One With Chandler In A Box, The One Where Everyone Finds Out and The One Where Ross Got High.

Between two intermissions you'll also be treated to new footage, interviews and bloopers — so you'll get an extra dose of Friends fun.
