ASTORIA, Queens (PIX11) — Students in New York City can follow the yellow brick road to spend their spring break with Dorothy, Toto and the gang during special screenings of “The Wizard of Oz” in 3-D.

Screenings run every day at 12:30 p.m. starting Friday, April 3, until Sunday, April 12, at the Museum of the Moving Image located at 36-01 35 Ave. in Astoria.

Tickets are $6 for children ages 3 to 12, $9 for students and senior citizens, and $12 for everyone else. All tickets include same-day admission to the museum.

“Watching The Wizard of Oz has been a childhood rite of passage since 1939,” the museum said in a statement.

“A quintessential road movie, musical, coming-of-age story, and more, this timeless classic has never looked better.”

The 3-D version of the classic film was released by Warner Bros. for the movie’s 75th anniversary. Young visitors to the museum can experience what it’s like to create the beloved characters of Oz with a design workshop.
