New Line Cinema, launched by Bob Shaye in 1967 from his Greenwich Village apartment, has cut its final tie to New York. The company, which moved most of its operation to Hollywood in the 1990s, has let go the last of its Gotham-based staff. That was production vice president Merideth Finn, who was among the layoffs last month in the downsizing that was mandated by Warner Bros. She just sent out a farewell memo, as today was her last day. Even though Finn was the Last of the Mohicans as a Gotham-based New Line exec, it still marks the end of what was, for a long time, one of the preeminent New York companies.
