Concessionary card for UK cinemas

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 or attendance allowance;
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.

For further information on the scheme, including a list of participating cinemas, here is a link to the CEA Card website. (This site may open in a new window).

This link allows you to download and print an application form - these are also available at some participating cinemas. Please read the CEA Card terms and conditions before returning the form.
You can use this link to look at the answers to some Frequently Asked Questions.

There is an administration charge of £5.50 for the Card, which lasts for one year.

The CEA Card is administered and run by The Card Network. For general card enquiries, please call their enquiry line: 0845 123 1292.
