(le jour de) mon anniversaire je suis allé au cinéma avec mes amis/copins


Explanation:
(le jour de) means 'on the day of'.
Literally translated, what I responded means, 'on (the day of) my birthday I went to the cinema with my friends.
The expression, 'me and my friends went...' is slightly erroneous even in English. The proper way to say it would be either, 'I and my friends went', or, 'I went with my friends'. I chose the latter based on its fluidity in colloquial French.
You can either say 'amis' for 'friends' or 'copins' for a closer, more slang 'pals'. If you want to be a stickler for details, 'copins' implies all masculine, and 'copines', all female, however 'copins' is a good generic term, unless you're looking for the most slangy version, 'potes' will do just fine.
I hope this helps.
