So, if you're a temporarily out-of-work federal employee, how do you spend your time? AMC Theatres suggests you take in a movie, according to a CBS news report. Theatre officials say the offer is good "until common sense is restored in Washington, D.C., or, more likely, until the shutdown ends or we run out of free popcorn," according to the report. The waylayed workers must present a valid government or military I.D. card to get in on the deal, it said.
