In the title compound, C22H16ClNO, the quinoline ring system makes dihedral angles of 56.30 (6) and 7.93 (6)°, respectively, with the adjacent phenyl and benzene rings. The dihedral angle between these phenyl and benzene rings is 56.97 (8)°. In the crystal, weak C-H and - [centroid-centroid distances of 3.7699 (9) and 3.8390 (9) Å] interactions link the molecules into a layer parallel to the ab plane.
