The trial of Scott A. Smith, accused of bringing weapons into an August showing of The Dark Knight Rises at Regal Cinema, was scheduled to begin Monday but has been postponed until next month.
A continuance was granted in Cuyahoga Court of Common Pleas last week, as the discovery phase of the case is continuing.
The new trial date is Jan. 16, 2013.
Smith is charged with a fourth-degree felony carrying concealed weapons (for the gun found on him), a misdemeanor carrying concealed weapon (for the four knives found on him) and a third-degree felony for having weapons under disability (for the gun on him as well as ones taken from his home). He is currently free on $250,000 bond.
Smith's attorney, Jack Hildebrand, filed a motion to suppress evidence in the case. The Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office filed a response on Monday.
Hildebrand was not available for comment Monday.
