Infamous serial killer Dorothea Puente’s former boardinghouse at 1426 F St. will be open for tours 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, with ticket proceeds benefiting the Francis House Center, a homeless services organization. The tours coincide with a Sacramento Film and Music Festival showing of “The House Is Innocent” by Los Angeles filmmaker Nicholas Coles. The documentary about the lighthearted couple now living in the home premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year and won the grand prize for best short documentary at the Rhode Island International Film Festival. It is scheduled to be shown at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12. $10; Memorial Auditorium, 1515 J St., Sacramento.
