"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.

Stand up guy. Going there must have been very difficult for him and I'm sure many ppl advised him against it.

Awesome and classy move by Christian Bale!!!

But don't hate on Warner Bros. for what they said. Their statement means Christian Bale made the decision to go himself, he isn't being forced to go by a studio just for PR reasons.

Rottman is showing up on way too many tv shows and media pieces. It's starting to feel opportunistic. I hope I am wrong.

That's a very decent and nice thing to do. And he didn't have to do it either. Cudo's to Christian Bale.
