The 1992 hockey comedy “The Mighty Ducks,” starring Emilio Estevez, was filmed around Minnesota. In the film, Charlie’s mother Casey works at Mickey’s Dining Car. Gordon Bombay, played by Estevez, visits the diner to speak to Charlie, where he tells him he’s stepping down as coach of The Mighty Ducks. The same diner appeared in the sequels “D2: The Mighty Ducks” and “D3: The Mighty Ducks,” as well as such films as “Jingle All The Way” and “A Prairie Home Companion.” At this time, the diner is closed indefinitely, but it is rumored to potentially reopen sometime in 2022.
