Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

The 2014 Marvel sequel “Captain America: The Winter Solder” was largely filmed in Cleveland, Ohio, with some additional footage shot in Washington D.C. and California. The lobby of the Triskelion S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters, where Captain America (Chris Evans) meets with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), is actually the interior of the Cleveland Museum of Art (11150 East Blvd, Cleveland, OH 44106).

Captain America goes on the run with Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), posing as an engaged couple as they examine the contents of a drive at a computer store inside the Tower City Center. The same shopping mall was seen in the 1994 film “Double Dragon.”

LOCATION: 230 W Huron Rd, Cleveland, OH 44113

The Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan, attacks Captain America, Black Widow and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie) as they drive along the Cleveland Memorial Shoreway (State Route 2). The vehicles stop near the overpass near W 3rd St / Summit, where most of the action takes place. Black Widow escapes from gunfire, leaping from this overpass down to the street below.

The Winter Soldier jumps down onto the roof of a car in pursuit.

Captain America shields himself from gunfire in this area near Summit.

The Winter Soldier walks one block up W 3rd St to W Lakeside Ave, where he and Black Window battle in front of the Justice Center Complex.

LOCATION: 1200 Ontario St, Cleveland, OH 44113 (facing W Lakeside Ave)

The S.T.R.I.K.E. team arrives in front of the same building, as The Winter Soldier escapes the scene.

This is located across the street from the Probate Court of Cuyahoga County, seen on the left below, which was featured in “The Avengers.” Only the interiors of the building appear in “The Avengers,” but the exterior is seen several times in the background of this film, as Captain America and The Winter Soldier fight.

Maria Hill manages to extract Captain America, Black Widow and The Falcon to a safe house, which was filmed at the Lake View Dam, located inside Lake View Cemetery. There are roads running by both this area and further down at the base of the dam, making it easy to get a view from the right spots. We’ve provided GPS coordinates below. This area is not far from the John Rockefeller grave.

Here is where they enter.

Later, Captain America stands at the top of the dam thinking.

The Falcon joins him and the two discuss how to handle The Winter Soldier. The same cemetery appears again later in the film during a scene at a grave site.

The Winter Soldier is examined inside of this building, where Alexander Pierce, played by Robert Reford, comes to visit him. The same building was seen in “Spider-Man 3.”

LOCATION: 900 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH 44115

Minority Report (2002)

Filming for the 2002 Steven Spielberg sci-fi film “Minority Report,” starring Tom Cruise, took place mostly around Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and Virginia.  In one action scene, a chase on rocket-packs occurs in front of this building.  This is actually part of the Warner Bros. backlot in Burbank, California.  The same building was seen in the 1994 Jim Carrey comedy, “The Mask.”

The Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California ran an exhibit entitled “Hollywood Dream Machines: Vehicles Of Science Fiction and Fantasy” from May 2019 through May 2020. Included on display were some vehicles from the film.

As a manhunt ensues for John Anderton, played by Tom Cruise, as he is chased by Agent Danny Witwer, played by Colin Farrell.  As the chase enters a car factory, Witwer watches as this “2054” Lexus Coupe is assembled around Anderton, who immediately drives it off and escapes.
