CANTON – Neil Weakland has been a fan of downtown Canton since his high school days at St. Thomas Aquinas, when he and friends would hang out at Muggswigz and wander the sidewalks.

He’s also a filmmaker whose 2014 feature “How To Change the World” was shown at the Cleveland Independent Film Festival and The Nightlight in Akron.

Combining these interests, Weakland has opened The Cut Cinema in the former Kathleen Howland Theatre at 324 Cleveland Ave. NW, which was for many years home to live theater performances.
