In the title mol-ecule, C24H20Cl2O2, the central methyl-benzene ring forms dihedral angles of 42.47 (10) and 34.34 (10)° with the terminal 4-chloro-phenyl fragments. The dihedral angle between the chloro-benzene rings is 34.45 (11)°. A weak intra-molecular C-H⋯O inter-action generates an S(6) ring motif. The crystal packing exhibits weak C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C-H⋯π inter-actions.
