"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.

Can you imagine their faces when Batman came walking through the door? What a wonderful thing he did to take the time to wish them well.

I didn't have such a good feeling about Bale when I heard his foulmouthed rant, loved him in the :Fighter", but now he has redeemed himself with me. Thank you Mr. Bale.

I love how everyone is now saying "I love him now! fan forever!". If this isn't a blatant PR move then I don't know what is.

He posted a picture on his facebook page. And what gives you the right to stalk that persons facebook page and use pics from there??? I think it is great what Christian Bale did, but our society is obsessed with glancing at strangers social media sites.
