Yes, you heard that loud and clear, folks — at select theaters, you'll be able to watch a selection of eight Thanksgiving episodes on Nov. 24, which is showing at 7 p.m. (local time), or either of the Nov. 25 showings, which begin at 4 p.m. and at 7 p.m. (local time).

The viewing experience is going to be one-of-a-kind.

Each and every showing will also include four "remastered" episodes, which have been upgraded to 4K film, according to Fathom. And that means you'll get to see Brad Pitt's sad boi face in high def... the dream.

To ensure that each of your favorite Friends Thanksgiving episodes will air during the showing you choose to attend, check out the lineup on Fathom Events' website when ticket sales go live.

As long as I get to see that epic football game on the big screen, though, I'm bound to be content with whichever episodes they choose.

This isn't the first time Friends has hit the big screen this year.

That's right — earlier this year in July 2019, Fathom aired select episodes of the award-winning sitcomo in theaters for a total of three nights, according to the press release. 

This attracted over 230,000 fans nationwide, which is precisely why the brand's CEO, Ray Nutt, is anticipating a successful turnout for Friendsgiving

In the press release, Ray said:

“Fans showed up in full force for our initial Friends screenings, so we know there is demand for more... We’re excited to put eight classic episodes on the big screen for fans to celebrate with their friends, just in time for Thanksgiving.”

You might also remember earlier this year, when Warner Bros. partnered with Superfly to present a Friends pop-up experience in New York City. 

It included a variety of photo opportunities and set recreations, while featuring an array of memorabilia from the show. Honestly, it sounded pretty incredible.

Put on your Thanksgiving pants, guys, because Friendsgiving is going to be a real treat. Go with all of your BFFs, or opt for a solo experience. Just don't invite Amy... nobody really wants her there, TBH.
