'Batkid Begins' documentary premieres in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The documentary about the Bay Area's favorite caped crusader premiered Thursday night in San Francisco.






A convoy of Lamborghinis carried many of the people who helped grant the wish of 5-year-old cancer patient Miles Scott, who wanted to be Batkid.


Red carpet arrivals for "Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World" started at Sundance Kabuki Cinema on Post Street around 6 p.m.

The documentary will open in select theaters Friday.

Actor Ben Affleck tweeted his support on Wednesday morning. He wrote, "From one Batman to another: thank you #SFBatkid."
