I want to add movies (already in one of my lists) to another list. Of corse this is possible if I add them one by one. But can I add all the movies of one of my lists to another list all together in a single move?

I can see no way to do it within the site, unless someone has a way to do it with external software.

An easy way really exists.
  1. Go to your lists page;
  2. Select the source-list to go inside it;
  3. Click the three-dots sign to edit the list;
  4. Check the boxes for all the items you want to be copied to another list;
  5. Click 'Copy to' and select the list where to copy;
  6. Enjoy the result.

MAthePA - thanks for adding the information about this hidden feature. IMDb fans rock!
I totally missed this desktop feature, handling lists usually on mobile.

Better yet, we will add screenshots - to show both the 3 dots and the drop-down options.
