Posted 13th AprEdited by:"RUSSt"
The Card enables a disabled cinema guest to receive a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them when they visit a partisipating cinema.
90% of cinemas in the UK are part of the CEA Card Scheme. A list of the websites for the cinema chains is available for reference
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.

The Card is developed by UKCA’s Disability Working Group, whose members include film exhibitors and distributors, and national disability charities such as Action on Hearing Loss, the RNIB, Dimensions and Muscular Dystrophy UK.

If you have questions about the card and how it works read the Frequently Asked Questions or contact us. See full Terms and Conditions.
You pay £6 a Year and admits he cardholder and carer in 2 for the price of 1 go as often as you like see if you qualify

As far as I know, you can show your blue badge in most places and you'll be able to get the same without the £6 charge.

It's useful for online booking and especially helpful to those disabled people who are not obviously so such as high functioning autism and fatigue type illnesses.
As RUSSt states ,not all disabled people have blue badges and even if they do ,the badge would be in the car most times.!

This is not true you must show a ceasefire card , well worth 6pound
In terms of the Blue Badge requirements, in Scotland they've extended the scheme. It's no longer purely physical disability to be eligible and councils can now take mental disability into account.

Exactly, sadly some people with hidden disabilities do not have a blue badge until the law changes ,
My sister has one and she's able to use this alongside her odeon limitkess. Happy days

It says specifically on the CEA Card Scheme website that Blue Badges on their own are not enough for the free ticket.

im a badge holder and i cant use mine and if i could i would have to pay for a parking space as i woudnt be able to display my badge if it was in the cinema with me
You can also use this in conjuction with meerkat movies so 3 of you get in for the price of 1 on tue/wed.
In Wales there is also a Hynt card that offers similar benefits for Welsh theatres too. Some venues that are both theatre and cinema often take hynt and it is free to eligible individuals. I’ve recently found some theatre companies in England will offer concessions for disabled guests to as long as you can prove your disability. ATG are one such group.
DLA/PIP/doctors letter, blue badge, just speak to your local cinema and see what they'll accept if they offer concession. This card just relieves you of £6 which you could of spent on popcorn.

You think it's easier to speak to the cinema every time you want to watch a movie? To explain disability? Then produce a letter for a concession? That's all easier than sending a email with photos of entitlement once a year!!!!! Really
So annoying that's it's 8 and above. Both mine are autistic and are 5.

You: "Hi, disabled plus carer please." Hand them PIP letter.

Cinema: "Thank you, that'll be £XX please." Hands you tickets.

Really.
Good luck with that xx

Good luck with that xx


No luck needed. I keep a copy of the current PIP award letter in my wallet so if/when we go anywhere that offers a concession I have it to hand. Never have I had to explain anything to anyone or pay to join some scheme and often don't even have to get the letter out! Whatever works for you tho xx

Indeed, on the CEA website - I would assume this is to encourage to you buy one one but in reality it's most likely up to the discretion of the cinema. I doubt they'd turn round and say "Sorry, that's for CEA holders only". I've heard of people using their badge and/or PIP letter. Don't shoot the messenger!

For those who don't benefit from PIP because, although now severely disabled by a stroke, they are beyond "working age" and can't get PIP or any benefits after a lifetime of working into old age, this card sounds a great idea. Thanks Op

Check the eligibility criteria and you may want to look into a benefit called Attendance Allowance.
Voted hot. The ability to book a carer ticket in advance online and not have to spend time queuing at the box office, then having to explain to the cinema staff why I need a carer ticket, every single time I go to the cinema, is more than worth the £6 annual processing fee for the CEA Card.

Couldn't agree more , my son gets super stressed at queuing , well worth 6pound for a whole year
