Service summary

The CEA Card is a national concessionary card developed by the Cinema Exhibitors’ Association. It can be used at UK cinemas and aims to make going to the cinema more accessible for disabled people. 

For a small administration fee, people with disabilities and their carer can each obtain a free ticket at the cinema with the CEA card. It supports the request that the cinema makes reasonable adjustments to make it easier for you to enjoy your cinema experience. 

How to apply: 
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 or Attendance Allowance;
b) Be a registered blind person.

There are three ways to apply and prove eligibility - please visit the CEA card website for details. 

Aim and Locations: 
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.
