This is a national card that can be used to verify that the holder is entitled to one free ticket for a person accompanying them to the cinema.

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

a) Be in receipt of the disability living allowance or attendance allowance.
One off charge of £5 which has to be submitted with proof of DLA/Attendance allowance or registration as a blind Person.

b) Be a registered blind person.

I have a disabled son and have just applied for this today. Hopefully this will help many others like me too!

I know this guy who's bird has MS, so he gets her to get 2 tickets in the day, while he goes with another friend later that night. Disgraceful

But it is a very good card

My daughter has had one of these cards for over a year now and they are great. She went last night with a friend. My daughter pays and her friend gets her ticket free. They then share the cost of my daughter's ticket. A cheap night out for them.

Do blind people go to the cinema?

I know it sounds mad but you don't have to be actually blind to be registered as blind. You just need a certain level of eyesight loss.

With the size of the screen in the cinema it's probably the only way a lot of them can enjoy film.

Awesome....teh Mrs can get in free...should be useful for summer films....thanks. ^_^

Don`t mean to be rude but why would blind people want to go the the cinema...
why can`t deaf people be allowed the same benefits?
#10
wow this is a brilliant deal. my husband is registered disabled and we go to the cinema alot. its funny how you have preconceptions of people registered disabled until it happens to you. my husband doesnt look disabled, but struggles with every day life due to a condition that he has. i ahve alwasy moaned about the benefits system, but must admit there is alot of help and support for him over this illness. great post thanks so much xxxxx

[SIZE=2]My daughter is deaf. She gets the advantage of the card. The card is for anyone with a disability who is in receipt of Disability Living Allowance. Some cinemas show one of their films once a week with English subtitles so deaf people can enjoy the cinema.[/SIZE]

great post also there is a card you can get which gets disabled people cheaper fares on public transport (sister has one)
#19
as long as you are recieving disability living allowance which can be for a number of reasons ie- my mums had breast cancer so gets dla and has one of these cards my friend who as 6 children 3 on disability for behavour problems has one for each of the 3 kids on dla and the other 3 go free !!!
#20
I have an autistic son who has one of these cards and they are excellent, it saves me a fortune as i would usually have to pay for a carers ticket as well.
Check that your local cinema is registered to accept this card, most are now. also we get the same discount to some exhibitions, plays and pantos with this card. definately worth asking.
#21
i didn't think you actually need a card as proof,my friend just takes proof of disability letter with her and it does the same thing she has been doing that for years,maybe it has changed now??, might be worth phoning the cinema and see if they accept with a letter, if you can it saves you buying the card.
i looked on odeon website and they do say you need the card,maybe it's because she has been going for about 6/7 years that they allow her in without the card.

The same reason some people still prefer to see films at the cinema rather than on TV at home - it's a totally different experience both visually *and* aurally.

why can`t deaf people be allowed the same benefits?


I am not connected with this scheme so can't say for certain, but I would imagine that it was set up because in order to go to the cinema many disabled and blind people, need somebody else to provide help with transport, supervision and/or care. In order to see a film, they therefor have no choice but to pay double the cost. A deaf person on the other hand doesn't need this extra kind of help so isn't penalised in the same way.

Although not applicable to me or mine, have voted hot as a very worthwhile thread. :)
