CLEVELAND - Before the movie hits the screens nationwide April 4, "Captain America: The Winter Solider" will premiere in Valley View April 1, hosted by the Greater Cleveland Film Commission.
The movie will premiere at 6 p.m. at the Cinemark 24 theater on multiple screens.Only some of the tickets will be available for purchase by the public.
Cleveland will be one of five cities hosting a premiere showing. London, Paris, Beijing and Los Angeles are the other cities participating in a premiere showing,
The action-packed movie is directed by Cleveland natives Joe and Anthony Russo. Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson are the stars in the film.
The crew spent six weeks last summer filming scenes in Cleveland.
“It was very important to the Russo brothers and to the film commission that we have a premiere here and that we thank the community for all of its support,” said Ivan Schwarz, executive director of Greater Cleveland Film Commission.
Schwarz said he could not confirm how many tickets would be made available yet.
“We can’t please everybody, but we are trying to service as many people as we can in the community,” said Schwarz. “This was a community effort." The event will also serve, partially, as a fund-raiser for the film commission. "Businesses will also have the opportunity to purchase sponsorship packages that would include tickets.”
