9:20 a.m. Don’t count on a movie date this weekend: A scorching Labor Day weekend would seem a great time to take refuge in an air conditioned movie theater, but in the Bay Area, you’ll have to head to Napa. The state’s color-coded blueprint allows indoor movies in red-category counties: only San Francisco and Napa County fit the bill in the Bay Area, and San Francisco doesn’t yet allow theaters to open.
