Cinema-goers heading out to catch a showing of Alice in Wonderland were probably not expecting to see one of the characters in real life.
But film fans found a white and brown rabbit abandoned at the Parkfield Street cinema in Islington, north London on Sunday, 28 March.
RSPCA inspectors were called when the rabbit was found hopping around inside the venue.
The one-year-old male rabbit, who has been called Pique, was taken to the Harmsworth Animal Hospital for a check-up. He was in a good condition and is now living with RSPCA foster carers.

RSPCA inspector Leigh Summers, who is investigating the incident, said: "This is a very bizarre place to leave a rabbit. There is never any excuse to dump an animal in any situation but this is even more unusual.
"While some may have a little laugh about how this friendly little bunny was found, dumping an animal is a criminal offence so we would like to find out more information about this incident."

Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 anyone found guilty of causing deliberate suffering to an animal can face up to six months in prison and/or a �20,000 fine.
Rabbits are very sociable animals so Pique is currently living with another female rabbit and the RSPCA hopes to rehome them together soon.
Anyone with information about this incident should call the RSPCA's advice and cruelty line in confidence on 0300 1234 999.
