August 9th



Beginning at 5 p.m. on Thursday the 9th, following the last day of preview, all bidders and their respective guests are invited to join us at the Royal Theater (just next to Booked Up #4 in Archer City).  There will be great Texas BBQ and drinks for all.  Tables and seating will be provided, and this will be a great meet-and-greet time for all those in attendance.  Texas BBQ is hard to resist, and when it is free to you, then it is even harder to resist!  This will be a great opportunity for bidders to meet new fellow bibliophiles and catch up with old friends from the book trade.  Larry McMurtry will be there as well, and it will be a great evening.


Around 6:30, we will begin the screening of the movie The Last Picture Show -- the film shot in Archer City and based upon McMurtry's novel.  What could be better than watching scenes from the Royal Theater while in the Royal Theater?  This will be a unique experience for all, and we're very excited to invite you to attend!



August 10th


On the evening of the 10th (Friday), James Mcmurtry will be holding a concert in the Royal Theater!   This event is open to the public and those wishing to attend will need to buy tickets.  James is the son of Larry McMurtry, and you won't want to miss this!  For details about this event and to get your tickets, please Click here.
