We report on magnetic and electronic properties of the B-site-ordered double-perovskite La$$_{2}$$CrMnO$$_{6}$$ films grown by pulsed-laser deposition. The magnetic-field dependence of magnetization curves showed hysteresis at low temperatures regardless of the degree of Cr/Mn order and the saturation magnetization became smaller for the higher-Cr/Mn-ordered film. The X-ray absorption spectroscopy and X-ray magnetic circular dichroism measurements suggested antiferromagnetic coupling between Cr$$^{3+}$$ and Mn$$^{3+}$$ ions, resulting in ferrimagnetism of the B-site-ordered double-perovskite La$$_{2}$$CrMnO$$_{6}$$. A band structure was established by combining these results together with the synchrotron-radiation photoemission and optical spectra. We discuss the magnetic states among the $$B$$-site-ordered La$$_{2}$$$$B'$$MnO$$_{6}$$ ($$B':3d$$ transition-metal elements from V to Ni) being basically consistent with the Kanamori-Goodenough rule.
