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.

It was not my intention to shadow the effort of Lina in any way. Moreover, it is great that official representatives of IMDb sometimes experience the same problems as the users do when searching for the right ways in the extra-complicated labirint of IMDb. The practical example that we have here and above is crying for idea to make features of IMDb visible for users.

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

We've noted to update lists help documentation, to make this more visible to users.

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