In the title mol­ecule, C16H16N2O, the pyridine ring and non-H atoms of the =CH—C(=O)— unit are coplaner, the largest deviation being 0.045 (2) Å for the O atom. The dihedral angle between this plane and the benzene ring is 2.79 (2)°. The mol­ecular structure is stabilized by inter­molecular C—H⋯π and inter­actions.
