‘Captain America’ Wraps Up Filming in Cleveland
CLEVELAND — After dozens of explosions, shoot-out scenes and, of course, the Shoreway shutdown, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ wrapped up its final day of filming in Cleveland on Thursday.
Filming began in mid-May in downtown Cleveland. Since then, actors and film crews have been spotted around downtown and at many Cleveland landmarks, including Tower City and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Many stars took in the local attractions.
Mr. Captain America himself, Chris Evans, even stopped by Ohio City’s brand new TownHall for dinner on the restaurant’s one-week anniversary.
Ivan Schwartz, of the Cleveland Film Commission, said hundreds of jobs have been created, thanks to the movie.
After “Draft Day,” which is also still in production, and “Captain America” leave town, Northeast Ohio’s economy will be the real superhero, swelling to an extra $75 million.
‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is expected to be released in 2014.
