You can join the Cinema Theatre Association on-line using PayPal. So don't delay, join today! Look here for a list of our current Membership charges.

What is PayPal?

PayPal is the safer, simpler, smarter way to pay online. All you need is an email address to make a secure online payment using your debit, credit card, bank account or PayPal balance.
You do NOT need a PayPal account just a credit card or debit card.
Your card details are neither collected nor held by the Cinema Theatre Association.

It is helpful if, when completing the PayPal payment form, you include your title ie Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms (or any other that you use) and your preferred first name.

UK residents joining with an Associate should choose the second option on the drop-down list, this will charge £33 + £10. An Associate Member must reside at the same address as the Full Member - this is the address collected when you pay.
After your payment is completed, please send a separate e-mail to the Membership Secretary with the full name of the Associate Member.

UNDER 25? There is a special reduced rate of subscription for you but you will need to provide proof of age. Please go to the RATES page and use the application form to be found there.

As the CTA is a registered charity, UK members further benefit the Association by means of GiftAid.

Please read this declaration before saying "YES - claim Gift Aid".

Please treat the enclosed subscription (and, if applicable, donation) as a Gift Aid donation. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given. I want the CTA to treat all relevant payments from the date of this declaration as Gift Aid donations, until I notify you otherwise.

Registered Charity No: 1100702

If you prefer not to use on-line services, you can still join by post. Just print and complete the PDF application form and post it to the Membership Secretary with your cheque or payment advice.
