By Pearl Cantrell
Monitor Staff Writer
SEVEN POINTS-The Big Show Auction is moving into the big time with a second location and a new partner. What began as a loss to fire on April 26, opened up an opportunity for Big Show auctioneer Terry Watson to go big time.

New owners of Main Place Cinema in Seven Points are (from left to right) Terry Watson, his wife, Sherrill, Steve Bevill and wife Barbara, Sue and Jack Jones (Sherrill's parents). The partnership will rename it the Main Place Galleria and hold auctions there on Friday and Saturday nights. The Bevills are merging their Lonestar Auction business with the Watsons and Jones' Big Show Auction. After renovations, they hope to open the Main Place Galleria the first Friday in July.

“Some guys work hard all their lives and don’t get the chance to expand like this. It’s a dream coming true,” he told The Monitor with great emotion.
A week and a half ago, Watson and his partners took possession of Main Place Cinema building in Seven Points. The 25,000 square foot facility has been on the market for some time. Owner Tommy Poe and Big Show Auction partners were able to agree on sale terms and a deal was struck.
“I am just so excited about this,” Watson’s new partner Steve Bevill added. “It’s going to be great.”
“The circumstances of it all coming together is a blessing,” partner Sue Jones said. “It’s a God thing,” Bevill added.
The Big Show Auction’s 11,000 square-foot building on State Highway 274 in Seven Points was engulfed in flames April 26. Terry Watson was attending the funeral of a family friend at the time. The loss was a terrible blow, Terry said. But now, all that has changed.
