[ESPRESSO_MOVIE_TABLE] Showing time in 24h, need 12h

We want to use the Custom File [ESPRESSO_MOVIE_TABLE] shortcode on our homepage to display some upcoming film events. The shortcode works great, however it is displaying all the events in 24h time rather than 12h time. This is the only shortcode that appears to be doing that. I tried messing around with it myself and injecting some PHP code to style it otherwise, but it didn’t work. Any help would be awesome!

Have you tried wrapping the $event->start_time in a php date() function?

I did try that but there’s a good chance I mucked it up. Would you be able to provide an example?

For example, this is what I entered and it returned an error. I feel like I’m close but I’m missing something.

start_time, $format = 'g i A') ?>
