    Hi @Weeme12 - Welcome to the community.
    There's a CEA cinema card which a disabled person can get so that they can have someone accompany them for free.
    If that's what you are looking for, here's a link where you can apply online: https://www.ceacard.co.uk/apply
    There is also a link if you want to apply by post on that page.

    @Weeme12 it's a great card. I'm off to watch the ballet at Vue tonight.  Cost £20 for two VIP seats instead of £40.

    Hi I have a CEA card it’s so good as you get a Carer or another person in for free, so it’s worth having the card.

    I've had the CEA card for years, only reason I don't have one at the moment is because all the Cinemas are closed due to the Pandemic, so I allowed my card to run out circa the end of last August and haven't renewed it.

    Do you think the scheme works well @MrAllen1976?

    Oh yeah, coupled with the Cineworld Unlimited card it saved me a fortune, and pre Pandemic I was often going to the movies twice a week most weeks.

    Before I had the CEA card though I used to have to blag my carers in for a reduced rate or even free, sometimes the Cinema staff were a bit funny about it, until I learned to quote the 2010 Equality Act.

    Also the Odeon do a similar scheme to the Unlimited card, called the Limitless card, pay a fixed sum of about £18 a month and you can go as many times as you want for the price, and you even get discounts on munchies and drinks.
