Can I get any discounts when visiting the cinema because of my sight loss?

You won't be able to get a discount for your own ticket to the cinema, but you can get a free ticket for anyone accompanying you at participating cinemas, if you qualify for a Cinema Exhibitor's Association (CEA) card.

To qualify for the card you will need to prove that you receive one of the following benefits:

  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Attendance Allowance
  • Armed Forces Independence Payment
  • are registered as either blind (severely sight impaired) or partially sighted (sight impaired)

Children aged 8 or over and adults of any age can apply for the card. The card costs £6 and needs to be renewed every year.

For more information on how to apply and which cinemas take part in the scheme, contact the CEA direct:
