Got one of these? Free carer admission!
Get free carer’s admission: The CEA Card is a national card scheme developed for UK cinemas by the UK Cinema Association ( formerly the Cinema Exhibitors’ Association or CEA). The scheme was introduced in 2004 and is one of the ways for participating cinemas to ensure they make reasonable adjustments for disabled guests when they go to the cinema. The card offers a free ticket for someone to go with a cinema visitor with a disability or additional need. Find out more about the card scheme
