The unit cell of the title compound, C36H36N2, contains two independent mol­ecules which are located about inversion centers. In each molecule the quinoline rings are almost planar, with mean deviations of 0.0302 (1) and 0.0173 (1) Å. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯π inter­actions into a three-dimensional network.
