Sunbeams shine through a hole in the roof of JCPenney at Dixie Square Mall. The second floor of JCPenney has been collapsing section-by-section for 2 years now, the roof is not too far behind. Title quotes James Brown's famous line from "The Blues Brothers". In 1979, two years after the mall closed, the interior and exterior were used for filming the infamous "Mall Chase" scene for the movie. It has been abandoned ever since. This pic is 100% original and un-edited in any form.
