“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” broke box office records on its opening weekend, and that could payoff for Cleveland.
The film brought in $96.2 million dollars on its first weekend in theaters, which is a record for April that beat previous record-holder, “Fast Five,” in 2011.
The Marvel Comics blockbuster was mostly filmed in Northeast Ohio in 2013, and is prominently featured in the film.
Cleveland is getting noticed; many local fans left the theater noting all the familiar locations they could spot around Northeast Ohio.
Troy Harris saw the movie in Richmond Heights Sunday evening. “It looks like it puts Cleveland in mind as far as our landmarks, things that our city can offer,” he said.
Ivan Schwartz of the Greater Cleveland Film Commission agrees.
