In the title compound, C25H20ClN3O, the C=N bond of the central imine group adopts an E conformation. The mean planes through the essentially planar carbazole [maximum deviation = 0.052 (2)Å] and quinoline [maximum deviation = 0.050 (2) Å] ring systems form a dihedral angle of 50.2 (1)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked by C - H⋯π and π - π interactions [centroid-centroid distances ranging from 3.635 (2) to 3.739 (2) Å], forming a three-dimensional supramolecular network.
