IT is normally
reserved for London, who hosts most of the major premieres, but
Liverpool was the location for this Blockbuster! Captain America
used Liverpool as the main location for key action sequence, as
Liverpool's iconic Stanley Dock was in fact the best location that
resembling 1940s New York, leading to Hollywood descending on the
town, back in September
2010. A few other parts of
this summer blockbuster were also shot in Manchester, but it was
Stanley Dock that was to steal the show and the imaginations of the
500 plus cast and crew, including the star Chris Evans. The special
red carpet screening of the film was held on, 27 July 2011, at
Liverpool One’s Odeon cinema, 2 days before general release. The
regional premiere was organised by Liverpool City Council’s Film
Office and regional creative industries development agency Vision
and Media, supported the North West Cancer Research Fund. This star
studded event attracted over 300 comic book fans and VIPs from all
over the world, eager to get the first glimpse of the Marvel
adaptation, "Captain America: The First Avenger".
Many of the people attending said that the event was better than the
world premiere in Los Angeles! These fantastic pictures are
