CEA Card

What is the CEA Card?

The CEA Card is a national card scheme developed for UK cinemas by the UK Cinema Association (UKCA) [formerly the Cinema Exhibitors' Association] in partnership with the cinema sector and major charities.

The scheme is one way in which cinemas can make reasonable adjustments for disabled cinema guests. The CEA Card allows the cardholder to obtain ONE complimentary ticket for the person who is accompanying them, to provide assistance such as:

  • supporting the cardholder in moving around the cinema, including finding and taking a seat;

  • helping the cardholder to leave the cinema in the event of an emergency;

  • accompanying or assisting the cardholder in using the cinema’s toilets;

  • assisting the cardholder in purchasing refreshments.

The cardholder is required to purchase a full price ticket for themselves for the same performance of the same film in the same auditorium. The card can be used to attend any type of screening, including accessible screenings.

There is a £6.00 annual administrative fee for the CEA Card. To check whether you might be eligible for and/or to apply for the Card, please visit the CEA Card’s website. Please note that by clicking on this link you will be taken to a separate website
