"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.

What a very kind thing to do. I know that the people of Colorado are truly appreciative. Its nice to see movie stars doing something from their heart and not something that will only benefit themselves. Thank you for giving your time, that means a lot to the victims.

What is Warner Bros problem?!
Nice move, Bale.
It's a shame WB isn't so generous, after all, that film is making bucks.

Awesome. Didn't hype it. He just went. He knew it would mean a lot to the people who suffered. I saw that someone posted whining about the photo used. Christian Bale knew what that visit was for- and I believe that is all that counts.

From the heart? Nah, from the wallet for sure. He's protecting the Batman franchise so they can make another movie!

Thank you Mr. Bale for being a good guy. You didn't have to do this at all and I know it means the world to these folks. A simple act of kindness :-)
