Friends fans⁠—it's time to put a turkey on your head and get the minced beef ready for your trifle as the NBC show's Thanksgiving episodes are coming to a cinema near you.

For "Friendsgiving," eight classic holiday episodes of the beloved sitcom are coming to theaters in a new 4K restoration.

Though it is not quite the Friends movie fans have been hoping for since the show stopped airing in 2004, it is a great chance to see classic episodes like "The One with All the Thanksgivings" and "The One with the Football" on the big screen for the first time.
