Friends’ Pop-Up Experience To Be Held For 25th Anniversary
It’s hard to believe it’s already been 25 years since we began watching six twenty-somethings sit around a coffee table in the little corner coffee shop Central Perk and to celebrate the anniversary of the beloved sitcom, Warner Bros. is partnering with Superfly to bring a Friends Pop-up experience to New York City!
The nostalgia-packed space offers fans the opportunity to explore the show and capture photos with set re-creations, props, and costumes that have defined 25 years of the iconic series. Stick a turkey on your head, peek through Rachel and Monica’s purple door, relax on Chandler and Joey’s recliner after playing some foosball, or help Ross with the infamous sofa pivot. Learn Monica’s top tidying tips with Method Home Products and surround yourself with Phoebe’s favorite things before heading to the re-created Central Perk for a pic on the legendary orange couch.
“It’s been nearly 25 years since Friends premiered, but the fascination and universal appeal of the hit TV series lives on with fans of all ages,” Peter van Roden, Senior Vice President, Global Themed Entertainment, Warner Bros. Consumer Products, said in a statement. “As we celebrate the show’s milestone anniversary, we are excited to bring the Friends experience to life for our fans in a way that pays homage to the remarkable cast of characters, iconic sets and instantly quotable moments.”
The month-long pop-up, which also includes a Friends retail store, opens September 7 and runs through October 6. The first day of the public opening is dedicated exclusively to AT&T customers who have a chance to get complimentary tickets through the AT&T THANKS appreciation program, whose app can be downloaded here!
Located in the heart of Manhattan’s SoHo district, the ticketholder entrance will be at 76 Mercer St. (between Spring & Broome), and the retail store entrance will be at 503 Broadway. The pop-up experience will be open seven days a week, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Patrons can reserve a time slot to visit the pop-up with a ticket purchase priced at $29.50.
In addition to the pop-up experience, Warner Bros. TV Group is launching an official Giphy channel with over 2,300 gifs featuring call-outs to favorite characters, locations, reactions and more, as well as 20 text stickers featuring iconic quotes from the series, all of which begins on July 30.
Tickets go on sale for the pop-up experience on Friday, August 2 here!
