In the crystal structure of the title compound, C28H21Cl2N, π–π interactions link pairs of molecules into centrosymmetric dimers with a distance of 3.756 (3) Å between the centroids of the pyridine rings. Weak intermolecular C—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds further link these dimers into chains propagating along . The pyridine ring forms dihedral angles of 21.52 (1) and 55.87 (2)°, respectively, with the phenyl ring and the 4-chlorophenyl ring.
