Summer Movie Series
Sept. 12 & 27 | U.S. Bank Plaza

Catch some hometown cameos Sept. 12 with the Cleveland-shot Kevin Costner football drama Draft Day. On Sept. 27, watch Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the area where Samuel L. Jackson led bad guys on a car chase and ... lots of things blew up during filming in 2013. playhousesquare.org

Cleveland Italian Film Festival
Sept. 18-Oct. 9 | Various cinemas

For a city built on kielbasa and kolache, Cleveland has quite the Italian accent. Joyce Mariani's Cleveland Italian Film Festival helps. She recommends attending an exclusive pre-festival dinner by Dante Boccuzzi Sept. 14 and seeing the comedy Magnifica Presenza about a wannabe actor who finds himself living in a haunted apartment. 216-456-8117

Greater Cleveland Urban Film Festival
Sept. 25-28 | Shaker Square Cinemas

Have your autograph book ready because on opening night Keith Robinson (remember him from Dreamgirls alongside Beyonce) will do a Q&A session following the screening of Cru, a drama he stars in about the lifelong impact of a high school car accident. Rub elbows with local filmmakers and other guest actors too. gcuff.org
