Everybody's seen Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown (what? you haven't? well, they're playing Friday and Saturday), but this mini-retrospective of Roman Polanski films digs deeper than the obvious masterworks. The jokey horror movie The Tenant, from 1976, is set in Paris where the housing market is painfully tight. When a woman commits suicide, a sad Pole—played by Polanski—gets her apartment. Then all paranoia breaks loose. (SIFF Cinema, 321 Mercer St, 633-7151. 7 and 9:20 pm, $9–$10.)
