Salt Lake City has a humpday full of diverse options waiting for your perusal.---

The Jewish Community Center is hosting a discussion with Thomas Buergenthal, a legal expert focusing on international law and human rights, and a Holocaust survivor whose memoir, A Lucky Child: A Memoir of Surviving Auschwitz as a Young Boy, has been translated into 10 languages. The event is free and starts at 7 p.m.

Brewvies is hosting Cancer Bites 2010, a fundraiser for the Huntsman Cancer Institute that includes screenings of two classic horror flicks,  House On Haunted Hill starring Vincent Price and the original Night Of The Living Dead directed by George A. Romero. Tickets are $25, which gets you a t-shirt as well as the two features and some grub.

If a free flick is more in your budget Wednesday night, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts is offering a free screening of Rabbit Proof Fence at 6 p.m. as part of its Anthropology Film Series.

Finally, the music highlight of the night comes via Pierced Arrows (pictured), the garage-rock crew from Oregon led by Dead Moon veteran Fred Cole and his wife Toody. Should be a memorable night at The Urban Lounge, with Red Bennies and Tolchok Trio opening the show.
