In the title compound, $C_9H_6N_2O$, two independent and almost identical molecules, pseudosymmetrically related by twofold rotation, form the asymmetric unit. The molecules adopt an overall L-shaped structure in which the cyanomethoxy residue is approximately perpendicular to the benzonitrile plane. The molecules assemble into dimers via $C-H...N$ and $C-H...O$ interactions, forming a sheet structure approximately in the (404) plane. Noteworthy $\pi-\pi$ interactions result in two distinct types of offset $\pi$-stacking arrangements.
