  LOTR exhibition breaks ticket record
Updated 15 September 2003, 14.59
Hopefully kids won't be too scared at the exhibition
Thousands of tickets for a special exhibition all about the Lord of the Rings movie have been sold before it begins on Tuesday.

The 14,000 advance tickets are the most ever sold for an exhibition in London.

It's at the Science Museum in London, and reveals some of secrets behind making the three films about Middle-Earth.

Computers can make visitors appear the size of hobbits, they can check out their rubber feet and try the contact lenses which make orcs look scary.

The exhibition will run until January and will be on while the final film in the trilogy - Return of the King - is released in cinemas.

The exhibition moves all around the world, and heads for Singapore, Boston and Sydney after its run in London finishes.

Check out Newsround's website on Tuesday for a press pack review from the Exhibition.
