An exhibition has been opened to celebrate Lincoln Cathedral's part in the making of the blockbuster film, The Da Vinci Code.
Fake statues and decorations were used on the set
The 920-year-old building was chosen after Westminster Abbey, where part of the book is set, refused to take part.
The display includes props from the film, behind-the-scenes photographs and anecdotes while there will also be a series of talks and tours.
Cathedral officials said they hoped the movie would boost its profile.
The nave, cloisters and chapter house were used to film scenes where stars Tom Hanks, Sir Ian McKellen and Audrey Tatou joined a crew and cast of hundreds.
The decision to allow the cameras in attracted criticism from some religious groups and one nun protested outside the main door.
Mike West, Canon of Lincoln Cathedral, said: "The huge question was whether this was going to be detrimental to the Christian faith or to the cathedral.
"In the end we thought it was important for the cathedral to engage with the movie and with the people interested in it."
Entry to the exhibition will be included in the price of a visitors' ticket to the cathedral.
