In the title compound, C30H22BrNO2, the cyclo­pentane ring of the dihydro­acenaphthyl­ene group and the pyrrolidine ring are both in envelope conformations with the spiro C atom and N atom, respectively, as the flap atom. The cyclo­pentane ring of the indane group adopts a half-chair conformation. A weak intra­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bond forms an S(8) ring motif. The naphthalene ring system of the dihydro­acenaphthyl­ene group forms dihedral angles of 41.76 (6) and 42.17 (6)° with the benzene ring of the bromo­phenyl group and the benzene ring of the indane group, respectively. The dihedral angle between the two benzene rings is 83.92 (7)°. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by weak C—H⋯O and C—H⋯N hydrogen bonds into a two-dimensional network parallel to the ac plane. Weak C—H⋯π inter­actions are also observed.
