The Hassik III Center for the Performing Arts is a center on Kaitain dedicated to the performing arts. Named after Hassik Corrino III, it was a cavernous building that has a column-studded edifice designed with acoustic enhancements and prismatic windows.

The spectators could see and hear performances from the most creative talents in the Imperium, without missing a whisper or nuance, even sitting in the most distant seats.

The veined-marble arches with flanking fire-fountains marked an entrance reserved for the Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV and his retinue. The crystal-cleared fountains spewed feathery arches of the perfumed oils; the sapphire-blue flames consumed much of the fuel before the droplets fell into the lozenge-shaped reflecting pools.

Lady Jessica Atreides, the Bene Gesserit concubine of the famous Duke Leto Atreides I went to the Center (with the recently crowned Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV, the Lady Anirul Corrino, and their daughters, Irulan I, Wensicia II, and Chalice) to see the play My Father's Shadow while she was on Kaitain serving as a personal lady-in-waiting for the Corrino family. Tyros Reffa performed in the play, and was arrested.
