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 will screen one of the choices from the 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! 

Singin in the Rain comes in the critics poll at Number 10. Described by Rotten Tomatoes as "an absolute masterpiece, and easily, easily 5 stars."

Gene Kelly's performance of 'Singin' in the Rain' has to be one of the greatest dance numbers ever performed on screen and Hollywood’s troubled transition from silent to talking pictures at the end of the 1920s provided the inspiration for perhaps the greatest of movie musicals.
