Lights, Camera, Action in Cleveland! Three major films that hit theaters over the last month were shot in Cleveland: ”Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Draft Day,” and “Miss Meadows.” Local film industry boosters say that's a sign the film tax credits the state hands out are worth it. Looking forward, can we keep the cinematic momentum going? Should the state keep offering incentives or are there other ways to lure movie makers?
