For those in Northern Ireland, my local Omniplex (and I would assume all others in the chain but please check with your local cinema before purchase) accepts the card despite not being listed on the CEA website. The free ticket can only be purchased in person unfortunately (no online or telephone sales).

No as some movies you don't need a parent over the age of 8 depending on it's rating .

defgimp

Never used to be, guess they’ve changed it at some point? They claim that it’s because cinemas require anyone under 8 to be accompanied, this card gets the holder a carer’s ticket, hence they’re accompanied? sort of contradicted itself to me, probably just the way I’m reading it :/

I don't see why not?. ADHD is a Mental Health Condition after all?. And under the Mental Health Act, the counts as a Disability ... Is that child on DLA, ESA, PIP, or anything?. If so, then you're definitely on to a winner in being eligible for one, etc.

freckle19

Can you apply for one if you have a chid with ADHD?

iconcreative

There’s no telling some people. It’s not even referred to it as that on the CEA website. And it clearly says ‘someone’ NOT carer. End of conversation.

Michaelpaulbates

Going round in circles here. ITS A CARERS CARD, not a “my friend, relative, colleague fancies a free ticket card”if they want to come along and watch a film they can pay like everyone else.

iconcreative

Quoted from the CEA website; “The Card enables a disabled cinema guest to receive a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them when they visit a participating cinema. The Card is also one way for cinemas to make sure they look after their disabled guests. If you require an adjustment to visit a cinema because of your disability, cinema staff should make them for you whether you have a CEA Card or not.” Name me anywhere is says anything about having to have a carer. The card isn’t even called a carers card anywhere on their website. They set the criteria and people have to prove eligibility for the card and they decide. NOT YOU. Their site says nothing about having to need a carer to be eligible. Says nothing about being a ‘carers’ card. You’re obviously very sour towards disabled people who are eligible for this card. If you’re not disabled or not eligible for this card I’ve no idea why you’re trolling the thread. Your attitude doesn’t give you the right to judge people on whether you think they are entitled or not. That’s for the provider of this card to do and they do it with very stringent checks, not least you have to be in receipt of disability allowance (now PIP). END OF!! Doesn’t even say they complimentary ticket has to be for a carer. It says a ticket for “someone”. There are a plethora of disabilities, not all of them visible, one of which might mean someone might not need a carer but they might need someone, a friend, a relative or a colleague to go out with them in public for any number of reasons. Why should they be denied a complimentary ticket just because you say so! You have absolutely no right to judge other people for using this card or whether they fit YOUR eligibility criteria. You don’t know their life!!

I just phoned up my local cineworld to ask if they accept DLA letter and they said it's just for people with care.or need Care. I tried to explain that my disability is Not obvious. I guess I'll have to apply for this cea card. it clearly states for people that receive DLA

Cineworld require the CEA cardholder to also have the unlimited card not two different people like yourself so you must be lucky to get in. So either you should have a CEA card or your partner have a Cineworld card

bigg_yinn

Its the carer that goes free ....but this CEA card can be used with any cinema card such as cineworld unlimited ... my partner and i are both disabled & she is a wheelchair user ... I have an unlimited card she has a CEA card ... technically i act as the carer as i push the chair... as i have a paid monthly card then no further cost unless its for bump ups such as 3D 4DX (Dbox) or VIP ... note if you have a CEA card Cineworld VIP is charged at £19 only if you eat the buffet or snacks ...otherwise its actually optional! ... only thing they have to sort now is non carers booking the "carers seats" right next to wheelchair spaces ...in such cases we cant even sit togethet as some people are A-holes and won't move

defairmans

I just saw your reply. I wasn't going to reply but I'm confused about your comment that "EVERY modern building is more than capable of accommodating all but the severely disabled so there is no reason for a carer to "work" by holding open the doors". I don't remember if you were the guy with an autistic son but I'm surprised that you assume only severely disabled people need help in modern cinemas. Our local cinema has very heavy doors and I struggle to open them for my husband who is in a wheelchair. I don't know what you consider severely disabled. There are such a variety of abilities out there and they affect people in different ways. Your assumption that a small percentage of disabled people need significant help is not true. I'm not sure what you think the carer card is there for exactly, if not to assist the disabled person. Do you think it's just a freebie for being disabled? I just found your comment strange. It seems you have very little knowledge of the disabled.

frakison

Please don't lets start this game. If you read the post properly, you would see that it was written in response to their judgemental post (I was highlighting how easy it is to assume!!). However, I stand by my comment that "carers" are NOT required in the majority of cinemas (I'm talking PHYSICAL as opposed to mental disability). Also, you're quoting the wrong person, please at least lets get that right :). Look, I have a disabled family member, he's in a wheelchair, he also openly brags how he can get people into cinema and Alton Towers for free so I know how it works. I still have issues with the entitlement issue, it SHOULD be seen a valued bonus, not a right :) As for "disabled people count and are a valuable part of society", of course they do, there but for the grace of god etc. HOWEVER, I don't think that a free cinema ticket goes even half way towards helping that.

frakison

If I want to and see a film, both I and the person I go with pay £8 EACH, why should you get it for half price,?? It's this sense of ENTITLEMENT I have issues with!!! If you genuinely NEED a carer to go to the cinema, fine, but lets just be HONEST for one second, hardly ANYONE NEEDS a carer to go to the cinema as law dictates that they are disability compliant. If I'm a troll, you're a scrounger.... you see, its easy to throw insults if you want to start that game. Chances are, I'm ALREADY paying your way through life, so go ahead, have a freebie cinema ticket on me too, in fact, tell them to chuck you some sweets then get someone else to pay for them too! This thread was pretty much wound up, don't know why you felt the need to stick your fat head into the mix at this late stage, but I wont be checking it again and I've clicked the good old ignore button. You will no doubt feel the NEED to respond, so feel free, you clearly have nothing better to do than spam old deals and in that sense, I really do pity you. You have a great life and keep picking up those freebies.... it's not problem, I'll keep paying :) I also see that you're a brand new member on here??! That means that you're either VERY arrogant and mouthy OR (more likely), you're a chicken who doesn't have the integrity to post on your MAIN account. Either way, you joined today just to spam a dead conversation and you say I'm a troll?! I think you need to have a good word with yourself and jog on :)

I got my bus pass before I claimed DLA luckily, not sure if being in Scotland its different but used to anger me how you would get well known or obvious junkies and alcoholics come on the bus and get their friends and partners on free, often they would sit at back of bus and talk about what drugs they are taking or how they are using their giro to get drunk yet I couldnt get a companion on despite being autistic and needing a motivator and I had carers but just sat at home because to go anywhere I had to pay petrol.

morty

This is why I find it unfair how dla people get all these extra perks people that claim that benefit most times can also work people who claim esa because they are to sick to work and then have to use friends or family as carers who get nothing. Same with bus pass esa can't get one dla can and the companion thing is a joke only some councils offer it.

bushey55

Maybe I missed something, but each time I have applied for a CEA card for my disabled wife I had to prove she was in receipt of DLA . It's not available to Just anyone. Secondly for those of you who are caring after another please please make enquiries with the benefits people, you may qualify for benefits, such as DLA, Carers Allowance or attendance allowance, there are a number of sites which are very informative and offer guidance if you are uncertain. Thirdly can those individuals who write derogatory remarks about this thread, just thank the lucky stars they aren't in that position of needing care or being a carer and simply GROW UP!!!!!!.

Wacker

my wife has one of these cards and it is great that someone who couldn't go on their own to watch a film can without the extra cost useing the card. Disabled people have a tough enough time and it's nice when they can get some help for free.

diabeticguy

Some carers may be asked to go to presentations that they just don't want to see. But may be happy to escort a friend or relative so that they can attend. The cinema is getting a paying customer and a carer to enable the customers well-being. I need a carer as I have heart failure, diabetes T2 and had 2 strokes; I wouldn't want to be alone in the dark if I had any complications and was unable to summon help.

NannyP

Thanks , am seeing her later on today so will ask her but I think she may earn more than £100 as she works for 20 hours a week & above min wage I think this cinema deal makes perfect sense as how can someone with a disability be left on their own in the cinema to fend for themselves , it just couldn't happen so is a good / practical solution for those with disabilities to be able to attend the cinema in the first place as it would be impossible without a carer there I just hope my DGS gets used to going to the cinema again as last time I took him it was too distressing for him as he hates change / new places etc and we had to leave after 5 minutes as he was too distressed being in a 'strange' enviroment , bless him xx I had so much trouble even getting him to go into the cinema screening because it was down a long dark corridor and then he wouldn't settle at all , was too uncomfortable there :( ( I used to take him when he was 2 - 3 and he was fine , but is more sensitive to his enviroment now at 4 ) I think my daughter is going to persevere with it though as he does get used to places in time and he has his favourite restaurants now which he won't even let her walk past without going in!!! LOL

magnakai

I haven't read all the comments, but here are the facts: This is a voluntary thing that cinemas opt into. There's no financial incentive for them to do so, and they have no obligation to honour it. The card simply verifies that you, according to the CEA, require care. It's meant to let people who couldn't come to the cinema on their own be able to. If someone has a physical or mental issue that prevents them from making their way to the cinema and/or being able to hang around a long period of time without a trained carer, then they're who this is aimed at.

saq17

If anyone's a student and gets the CEA card, then you can use them together. Plus if there's any offers going on, for example fews ago..there was 40% off Odeon Cinema vouchers, i used my CEA card, student discount, plus 40% off...giving me a total of £3.87 for both. i didnt get to try o2's free cinema deal - now finished, however in theory you would off got 2 people in for free!

m4rc

As long as she cares for at least 35 hours and doesn't earn over £100 a week she possibly would, though they do take income support into account too. Working Families Tax Credit also has a disability component if he is receiving DLA at (I believe I'm right in saying) middle or higher rate they pay a higher rate of tax credit. She might also qualify for other support, I won't post it on here but search direct.gov.uk or send me a message and I will help if I can, I just don't want to get people started if I start listing other entitlements.

I would go for this except my cinema does not participate in it, Still its hot though :D

nigel959

Yes, this is legit as I have a card for both my daughter and son, and this means that my wife and I both get in free of charge to the cinema when we go with them. But its not just us, when they go to the cinema with friends, one of them gets in free. It can be used nationwide and we have also used it in Southern Ireland a few times. The card is a godsend as it saves a fortune each time we go, but we have noticed that if you use it at the Odeon Cinema's then you just show the card and pay your money, but when used at Vue Cinema's you have to fill a form in when purchasing the tickets. Would defintely recommend one of these cards to anyone with a disablity.

kelly_o_fanatic

No scam, I got one a few years ago and have been using it with no problems since Yup, I got mine when it was 3 years, runs out next year. I have hidden disability and agree its hard to convince people, blue badge is no good either because you usually use it to park somewhere, and therefore cant show it! I have it photocopied and show that or CEA card as proof.

TAH-M

It's nationwide. Have not been refused by any cinema anywhere to date. They swipe a barcode (not on the card, cinema staff don't like it much as it's a bit of a faff) and give you a free ticket. simples.

befuddled

Unfortunately as with everything else it will not apply to our little town on the coast.

True this card only lasts for 1 year but considering it costs £5.50 and you save more than that on using it just once then it has got to be a good deal in my opinion. I have never paid myself into the cinema since using the card and getting in as a free carer. I wasn't aware of it existing for my teenage son and have already saved over £40 using it in the first 2 months. Unlike other cinema offers and vouchers this is fully valid for 3D screenings. However I am a bit disappointed I can't use it to book online then again I understand the cinema would need to check the card before purchasing. All in all my opinion is I will be renewing it next year and have recommended it to a few other people.

burningflame

I think it was well worth posting, it's possible some newly disabled/VI people aren't aware of it, so it is new information for them. For those people who knew about it previously, there are many who won't know the validity has changed from 3 years to 12 months, I didn't. Either way, £5.50 for a year's cinema is excellent value. Heatage. :thumbsup:

Not as good a deal as it used to be! I got mine last year and its valid for 3 years Still good though, you only need to go once to make your money back

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

nightswimmer

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. 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.

angieth

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.

westmorlandlife

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.

fanny

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 !!!
