The CEA Card is a national card scheme developed for UK cinemas by the UK Cinema Association (UKCA).
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.
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.
You will need to provide evidence that the card holder receives one of the following:
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- Attendance Allowance (AA)
- Personal Independence Payment (PIP)
- Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP)
- Blind Persons Registration
You will need to send a copy of the awarding letter from DWP or a statement confirming receipt of the allowance for the person requiring assistance(the card holder).
This should be dated within the last 12 months.
Alternatively, if you are a Registered Blind Person then please send a photocopy of certification for the person requiring assistance (the card holder).
To apply, the person requiring assistance must be 8 years of age or older.
