HOLLYWOOD'S A-listers would have felt right at home in Hatfield last night.
The Galleria's Odeon cinema hosted a lavish film premiere, courtesy of four business studies students from the University of Hertfordshire.
As part of their course, James Cristal, Mike Wells, Phillip Bunyan and Ryan Tuvey had to organise a fund raising event for the charity of their choice.
They got the idea for a film premier after seeing the glitzy opening night of James Bond movie Quantum of Solace.

"We saw the Bond movie premiere on TV one night while we were brainstorming," said James, 21. "We just thought "Why don't we do that?""
Nearly 150 people attended the sell out event. Guests walked up a red carpet and were given goodie bags, before seeing a special showing of new Hollywood action film Push.

All proceeds from the night went towards Breaks Manor Youth Centre, in Link Drive, Hatfield.
James said: "We wanted to pick a local charity, and Breaks Manor was our top choice. We've been in Hatfield for four years and we wanted to give something back."
Barry Clark, senior youth worker at Breaks Manor, said: "We're extremely grateful to the students at the University of Hertfordshire. It's their night really, we are just very grateful beneficiaries."
After the movie, many of the contingent descended upon Bar 12, in Harpsfield Broadway, for an after show party.
