"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.

Total respect for this guy now... Very humble and compassionate... Seen him when he was very young in "little women."

I watched our local news about it. They brought in workers from other hospitols aswell who worked on the victims. And they were not told who they were going to meet. And when our news stations contacted his people to ask if he was here, they said no. So he really did do his best to fly under the radar with this one. Shows that it really did come from the heart.

People think that this would bring out the worst from the victims... this guy looks pretty happy to me. This was such a nice thing to do. He's amazing.

I really doubt that he is visiting the victims out of some great feeling of Christian charity. He's probably there because the movie needs some positive PR to counter this nightmare tragedy. Come on, who thinks of this latest Batman movie without linking it with that murderous monster and his bad deeds.
