In the molecule of the title Schiff base compound, C15H14ClNO, the two benzene rings are twisted with respect to each other, with a dihedral angle of 35.0 (3)°; an intramolecular O-HN hydrogen bond occurs. In the crystal, weak C-H interactions between methyl groups and chlorophenyl rings link the molecules into supramolecular chains running along the a axis.
