Currently starring in The Scoundrels at the Savoy Theatre in London’s West End, Rufus Hound was aghast when he found out that the Secret Cinema show was going to be cancelled for tonight’s showing.
Acting with a speed of thought, not very often seen these days, but probably due to working alongside the awesome cast of The Scoundrels, and also being a genius, Rufus came up with a plan, and this is what he Tweeted!

Rufus Hound writing on his blog
“Hello. I’m writing this in a real hurry, so sorry if it’s a bit… y’know… rubbish, but, I just found out Secret Cinema had to cancel tonight.
That sucks. I know everyone is cross with them, but let’s assume they tried their best and something just went wrong. It totally sucks. I have tickets for Sunday night and am so stoked about it, so I can imagine how annoying and frustrating it’ll be if it gets cancelled.
Anyway, I just got off the phone from the people who are running ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’, the show I’m in. We’ve had an idea.“
If you have a ticket for tonight’s Secret Cinema, turn up at The Savoy Theatre instead and you’ll get a complimentary ticket ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels – The Musical’
Yep. You read that right. You don’t have to do anything other than turn up with your Secret Cinema ticket, and you’ll be welcomed into the world of another cult 80s movie. Go to ‘Back To The Future’ when they re-schedule you, but tonight, if you’ve got a big gang of pals all in London, all excited about going out and now you have nowt to do, well, now you do 🙂 And for anyone who doesn’t want to, I hope your night doesn’t end up too ruined.
Your Pal, Rufus Hound
I tell you what… if this guy ever gets into politics, politicians and bureaucrats had better watch out. Here is a guy who has a brain, and can think on his feet, and think about how to help OTHERS!
Maybe the rest of the West End could help Secret Cinema fans with cancelled tickets over the next few days? (if it gets cancelled)
All I can say is… Well done Rufus Hound! A TOP GUY!
