Where was the Tivoli Theater located circa 1948

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

My father was a musician and played in the pit band at the Tivoli in 1947 or 1948. The show at the time was called "Raise the Roof," starring comedian Jerry Lester, who went on to hosting "Broadway Open House" on television in 1950, I believe. This was the precursor to "The Tonight Show" with Steve Allen. The location of the Tivoli Theater, now defunct, might have been at 40 Eddy Street, but I'm not sure. Thanks for your help.
