In the crystal structure of the title compound, C24H6O, the mol­ecule exhibits point symmetry m but the mirror plane is not utilized as part of the space-group symmetry. The structure contains face-to-face inter­actions between the 2,4-dimethyl­benzyl­idene substituents in which the methyl groups lie directly above the centroids of adjacent benzene rings.
