CLEVELAND -- From the West Shoreway, to Tremont and now to a new temporary home.

Marvel is moving its production of "Captain America: Winter Soldier" to the Cleveland Museum of Art.

As a result, the museum will be closed to the general public for a brief period.

"Due to the filming of a major motion picture, the Cleveland Museum of Art will be closed to the public on Sunday, June 23," a message declares on the museum's web site. "The museum's atrium, restaurant, café, store and Gallery One will be closed on Tuesday, June 25."

It's unclear what stars will be on location for the filming inside the Cleveland Museum of Art.

The museum's regular hours of operation are Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Closed Mondays. 

Most recently, production was busy filming interiors at a home in Tremont along W. 7th near Literary Road.

Although none of the actual filmmaking was visible to onlookers in Tremont, stars Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow) and Anthony Mackie (the Falcon) were all spotted several times Tuesday.

It was definitely difficult to catch a glimpse of Evans or Johansson because crew members were armed with black umbrellas to shield the stars from view.

Many people gathered on the sidewalks Tuesday watching closely to see if they could spot the stars. At one point, a production assistant handed out small Captain America shield pins to the kids who were sitting nearby.

"Captain America: Winter Soldier" -- which has been filming throughout Cleveland for several weeks -- is slated for release on April 4, 2014.

The movie also stars Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as the eye-patch wearing Nick Fury, Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and Sebastian Stan as the Winter Soldier.

The film is directed by local brothers Anthony and Joe Russo.
