Cleveland is the lucky city that is getting the slot for a red carpet premiere (April 1st) as that is where the film was shot.  According to Co-Director Joe Russo, it was meant as a pay back to the local talent and crew. Tickets will also be available to the public.  Cleveland joins Los Angeles, Paris and London as far as cities getting the red carpet treatment.  I still expect New York City to get a regular screening.  And if history is any gauge, there will probably be only one and it'll be extremely packed!

If you're one of those lucky ones that live in Cleveland with a budging wallet.  The Greater Cleveland Film Commission offers several group packages for tickets to the public.  On average, each person will be forking over $500 per person to attend the red carpet.  Not sure how that is really a "thank you Cleveland," as far as the public is concern.

Here are the packages available:
Key Grip (10 available) $3,000: 6 premiere tickets, recognition on the GCFC website
Casting Director (10 available) $5,000: Shared on-screen logo recognition in front of 1,500 influencers, 10 premiere tickets, recognition on GCFC website

Location Manager (4 available) $7,500: Shared logo recognition on concession items, shared on-screen logo recognition in front of 1,500 influencers, 10 premiere tickets

Director (4 available) $10,000: Shared on-screen logo recognition in front of 1,500 influencers, 20 premiere tickets, recognition on GCFC website

Executive Producer (1 available) $25,000: Stand-alone on-screen logo recognition in front of 1,5000 influencers, 50 premiere tickets (30 of which are VIP), recognition on GCFC website

If you're in Cleveland, would you be willing to pay $500?
