Forbidden Media heads north looking for a better climate--in Denton of all places

Moore says he'd also like to find a venue where he could continue the repertory film series again, bringing goofy vintage films like Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and more serious independent fair such as Harmony Korine's Julien Donkey-Boy to Denton's left-of-center aficionados.

His main doubt right now is whether Forbidden's Dallas patrons will make the trek north up Interstate 35, but the store's Web site (www.forbiddenmedia.org) is being updated to make online ordering "less painful." Moore understands the rigor of the commute: He's "transient," he says, splitting his time between Dallas and Denton, spending most of his days getting the store ready for a new batch of Forbidden fans. As the store gets settled, he's still undecided on his own permanent relocation to Little D. He's just hoping that Denton is more decisive when it comes to being Forbidden.

Gone but still Forbidden: Ben Moore stands in the store's empty home in Expo Park.
