    Hi there 

    I just find the cinema you want to go to through Google then just find the film you want to see and book the tickets 

    You get email confirming which you show at the cinema to get in

    HI and welcome,

    My daughter loves going to the cinema, she has ASD and a learning disability. She goes to the Odeon and always buys tickets online. Fairly simple to do really, just choose your film, date and time. Then choose your seats and finally pay for the tickets you have. You will then be emailed confirmation. When you arrive just show them the email confirmation, which is your ticket. Hope this helps.

    Yes, she books through the app and she goes a few times a week. She has the limitless card so saves a fortune. She also has a CEA card so her carer has a free ticket because she never goes anywhere alone.

    I've never used the Odeon app, but would you be able to share a bit more about what you're finding tricky about it in terms of booking a ticket @lws1511? This might help us to help you find a solution.

    Hi @lws1511 :) I've merged your two threads as they seemed to be about a similar topic. 

    Do you think the app may be broken, or is it just difficult to use? I had a look on the browser version and it wouldn't let me select a cinema, location, or filter... Perhaps this is a wider issue?

    @Username_removed yea some of the cinema mobile app but I think Odeon does require you to insert your CEA number for purchasing an accessible seat. but it is difficult enough to find the right screening tho!

    I find this really interesting, she managed to find screening okay? did she mention any challenges she faces when using the app?
