Where does Duluth come into this story? Through the Lake Superior Railroad Museum, and a pun.

“There’s (a) gate that’s used to close the Lake Superior Railroad Museum off from the rest of the building,” explained Hailey Eidenschink, the St. Louis County Depot’s cultural coordinator. “When we would do ghost tours in the building … we would always get ‘caged in’ at the end.”

At a staff brainstorming session, those ghost tours led to an intriguing concept. Eidenschink described the line of thought: “Nicolas Cage … get ‘caged in’ … we should have a movie marathon!”
