A HOLLYWOOD-style film premiere was held in Ellesmere Port.
Cast and crew from the Wild West production donned their best evening dress and arrived in pink and white limousines for the event at the Civic Hall.
They were celebrating the first showing of Dusty Ridge...The Town's Last Chance, a Spaghetti Hoops western made by the Hot Dog Film Company.
The drama was created by 30 people, all of whom have learning disabilities and are based at the Wirral branch of the charity HFT.
This is their second film, following on from Battle For The Crown, a medieval drama released last spring.
Working on a very low budget with only one camcorder and a borrowed tripod, they came up with the ideas, developed the characters and script and acted out the 20-minute film.
It's a gripping story of greed, robbery, deceit and kidnapping all handled with more than a hint of humour.
Music and lyrics were by Merseyside musicians the Boogaloo Brothers.
The film was directed by actress Stephanie McGill, a support worker at HFT, and drama therapist Giselle Freeling-Wilkinson.
Filming and editing was by HFT community inclusion manager George Rowland and senior support worker Tom Maguire.
Miss Freeling-Wilkinson said: 'We're really proud the group has made such fantastic progress.
'Individuals became more aware of their own personalities, developing a greater self-esteem.'
More than 120 people attended the premiere, where the film 'went down a storm'.
Mr Maguire said: 'This was a fantastic event and better than our best expectation.
'There wasn't one negative comment about the film. Many people said how much we've improved from last year which has made us all the more determined to continue.'
The DVD of Dusty Ridge is on sale at £4 from Mr Maguire or Mr Rowland at Oaklands Business Park, Hooton, Cheshire CH66 7NZ or by calling 0151 328 1778.
All money raised goes to the community inclusion fund for equipment for the group.
