You can change the arts and culture conversation. Chip in to rabble's donation drive today! 

Over the holidays, there’s nothing quite like cozying up with a special someone, or a couple of friends, to watch a flick on the big or medium screen; or if you’re like my family, crowded around the laptop. (No, we didn’t join the Black Friday mobs battling for a TV this year -- we’re making do!)

Regardless of how we consume film, rabble rousers want more than the typical Hollywood fare, right?
