Cinema's Exhibitors Association (CEA) Card

The CEA Card is a national concessionary card developed by the Cinema Exhibitors’ Association for UK cinemas in order to allow people with disabilities to obtain one free ticket for a person accompanying them to the cinema.

 To apply for the card, you will need to meet one or both of the following criteria: 

 a) Be in receipt of the disability living allowance, attendance allowance or Personal Independence Payment;

 b) Be a registered blind person.

The aim of the CEA Card is to provide a consistent voluntary approach to the provision of complimentary tickets for people with disabilities. In the past this was done on a site-by site-basis. Around 90 per cent of UK cinemas are supporting the scheme from the large national chains to smaller independent operators.

There is an administration charge of £6 for the card, which lasts for one year.

Application forms can be downloaded from the CEA website and are available from some participating cinemas. For a list of participating cinemas, please go to the CEA card website. (This site may open in a new window).
