PlayStation's June 15 E3 press conference will be streamed live in movie theaters in every state in the U.S. and three locations in Canada, the company announced today.

The PlayStation E3 Experience will be shown in more than 75 theaters for free. Attendees for the  event will also watch an exclusive 30 minute post-press conference show hosted by Geoff Keighley.

This is the second year PlayStation is hosting a livestream of its press conference in movie theaters. Last year, tickets in most markets sold out in 15 minutes or less. So this year PlayStation is increasing the number of theaters showing the event by 150 percent, with at least one in ever state in the U.S. and one in three Canadian cities, according to Keighley.

"You and fellow members of the PlayStation community will get to see the full PlayStation E3 press conference in HD on the big screen, plus there are special bonuses for those who come out to the theater experience," Keighley wrote on the official blog for PlayStation. "I'll be hosting an exclusive 30-minute in-theater post show with extended footage and interviews with developers, and everyone who attends will take home a PlayStation surprise, which will consist of PlayStation goods and digital codes we can't disclose yet. (Last year attendees received early access to the Destiny Alpha and Battlefield: Hardline beta, along with a great poster and VIP laminate)."

Tickets for the show are free and available starting at 9 a.m. PT May 27 at PlayStation.Com/e3experience.

Eighty percent of theater capacity will be reserved for ticket holders, according to the post, with the remaining held for those on the wait list, who will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.

You'll also be able to watch the press conference on your PS3 or PS4 using the Live Events View app.
