"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.

That was very nice of him to do that.. The survivor's are likely dealing with survivor's guilt..as well physical pain from being shot.. and also some of the victim's family/friends died.. While this certainly won't heal all of the emotion wounds.. I bet it did uplift them...

Bale didn't have to do this... So he gets major respect from me..

I've never been a real fan of Bale after some of the controversy that's surrounded him.. but he did a really nice thing by flying into Colorado and being so supportive..

Mr. Bale is a good man. He's doing this for the victim, not the cameras.

How cool of Christian Bale to visit the shooting victim from Co
I don't think it was any kind of media stunt because the picture would have came out a lot better, I really thing his visit was from the heart

Well, if he's on promo tour, he honestly should wear his Batman costume and should speak with that stupid voice...
