Sight and Sound's 'Top 100 Greatest Films of all time' is the critics poll the magazine takes each decade with more than 1,600 critics, to test the temperature of what is considered a classic!

This year, we are screening one of the choices from the most recent 2022 poll each month, as part of our new Sunday Classics series. At the screenings, we invite you to join the conversation and vote for YOUR own classic, which we'll screen at the end of 2024 as part of our very own Audience Poll!

Hand pointing at viewer with text reads We Want You!

We want your votes!

Join us on the first Sunday of every month throughout the year at 11am and be part of the conversation.

Watch the Top 10 Greatest Films of All time from the critics and then decide YOU who gets your vote in our special The Hastings and St Leonards Audience Poll!
