Is there a simple way to change the anchor point of a DisplayObjectContainer?

I want to be able to rotate the whole container's contents with a chosen point as anchor. As it is, it rotates on point (0,0) and I don't se any way to easily change that. I realize some acrobatics could be done to compensate the container's position each frame to keep the center where I want, but I want to make sure I'm not missing something obvious first.
 
Thanks!

I have set Container.pivot.x and Container.pivot.y to 0.5 and nothing seems to have changed.
 
edit: It seems that the pivot property defines a universal point to pivot around, not an area of the container itself (i.e. I had to set pivot.x to window.innerWidth/2 and pivot.y to window.innerHeight/2). Now it's working! Thanks!

Can someone point me to an example of this? Setting a Container's pivot property seems to have no effect for me.
