"Dark Knight Rises" star Christian Bale is currently in Denver, CO ... visiting the victims and families of last week's movie theater shooting.

According to KDVR, Bale has been spotted at Aurora Medical Center ... where he reportedly arrived by ambulance around 2PM ... most likely to enter the building under the radar.

A rep for Warner Bros. released a statement saying, "Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers."

It's unclear when Bale arrived in Denver.

Bale's film was playing in the Century 16 theater in Aurora, CO when James Holmes opened fire on the crowd ... killing 12 people and injuring 58 others.

Bale has not made a public appearance since the incident.

Uh    

Interesting how Warner disavows Bale. Also how Warner is the parent company of TMZ. Would make one think that TMZ consists of human puppets while Bale is a man.

Good for Christian Bale on making that appearance, it shows that celebrities do care about normal citizens. I’m sure the victims really appreciate it I hope other members in the cast do the same.
