In the title compound, C31H23NO2S, the pyrrolidine ring adopts an envelope conformation (with the spiro C atom as the flap), while the thia­zolidine ring and the two cyclo­pentane rings adopt twisted conformations. The mean plane through the hexa­hydro­pyrrolo­[1,2-c]thia­zole ring [r.m.s deviation = 0.400 (1) Å] forms dihedral angles of 76.83 (4), 80.70 (5) and 79.00 (4)° with the benzene ring and the mean planes of the dihydro­acenaphthyl­ene and the dihydro­indene rings, respectively. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds into sheets lying parallel to the bc plane. One of the ketone O atoms accepts three such bonds. Weak C—H⋯π inter­actions are also observed.
