"Little Red Wagon," a movie about a little boy who takes it upon himself to help homeless children, brought in sell-out crowds at the Agoura Hills Stadim 8 Theatres Friday night for its holiday premiere.
In attendance were the film's producer, Michael Guillen, a former Agoura Hills resident, and the young man on whom the story was based, 15-year-old Zach Bonner.

Bonner, who lives in Florida, has been touring the country to help promote the independent film-with-a-message, which is currently in limited release.
"My personal goal is to tell people that it doesn't matter how young or old you are; it doesn't matter how much money you have; you just have to have the desire to do something ... and you can change the world," he said.
Bonner spent some of his time in the Agoura Hills/Calabasas area speaking with kids at Lindero Canyon Middle School and Viewpoint School.
He hopes the film will eventually go to wider release.
"We decided to [allow the filmmakers] to do this because we felt that a Hollywood movie would reach out to a lot of people, and so far, it's proven to be true," he said.
At this time Agoura Hills is the only Los Angeles-area city where the film is being shown. According to the clerk at the ticket window, Friday's show was sold out.
