New Line Cinema to Move to Warner Bros. Lot
The motion picture studio will leave its West Hollywood location this summer and relocate in the space formerly occupied by Legendary Entertainment.
New Line Cinema will move onto the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank in June 2014, taking over offices formerly occupied by Legendary Entertainment.
The Warners-owned studio, which produced Oscar Award-winning The Lord of the Rings trilogy as well as Wedding Crashers, Horrible Bosses and We're the Millers, has operated out of a Los Angeles headquarters at Robertson Plaza in West Hollywood.
The separate offices date back to New Line's origins as an independent studio run by Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, who left the company in 2008 as its operations were folded into Warner Bros.
Now New Line, run by Toby Emmerich, is preparing to move into the plush offices of building 76, which was used by Warner Bros. Records from the late 1950s until 1978 and later, during the 1980s, housed offices for producer Paula Weinstein, James Garner and John Travolta. Most recently, Thomas Tull's Legendary Entertainment occupied the building until its high-profile breakup with Warner Bros. last year.
Tull signed a deal with Universal and moved the studio to The Pointe, a LEED Gold-certified office tower located less than a mile from the Warner Bros. lot.
