Reconstruction of attosecond beating by interference of two-photon transitions (RABBITT) is a powerful photoelectron spectroscopy, offering direct access to internal dynamics of the target. It is being increasingly applied to molecular systems, but a general, computationally tractable theory of RABBITT spectra in molecules has so far been lacking. We show that under quite general assumptions, RABBITT spectra in molecules can be expressed as a convolution of the vibronic cross-correlation functions and two-electron photoionization matrix elements. We specialize the general expressions to the commonly encountered special cases. We expect our theory to enable accurate modeling and interpretation of molecular RABBITT spectra in most medium-sized molecules.
