Cleveland to Host Premiere of Captain America



Cleveland will join the ranks of cities such as Paris, London, Los Angeles, and Beijing this spring when we host a premiere of the new film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

“It was a massive priority for us to do this in Cleveland, and the Marvel and Disney people agreed,” co-director Joe Russo recently told “We want to have a premiere that includes the local cast and crew and make some tickets available to the general public. It’s a way to say thanks and pay back the city for being such a great host.”

Details on the premiere are still scant, though reports say it is slated to take place on Tuesday, April 1. The film opens nationwide on April 4.
