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

You probably won’t be able to get a discount for your own ticket to the cinema, but you may be able to get a free ticket for anyone accompanying you if you sign up for a Cinema Exhibitor's Association (CEA) card.

To apply for the card you will need to prove that you receive a qualifying benefit (such as Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or Attendance Allowance) or that you are registered as blind (severely sight impaired). 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, visit the CEA card website, call 01244 526 016 or email
